Is it possible to search for groups of people?

I have recently joined the English Quakers category of the  Quakers Project because a large number of the members in my family tree were Quakers from Yorkshire, Durham and Surrey in England

Having tagged person profiles as members of the category English Quakers, is it possible to search for the group of those so identified, as opposed to searching for them individually?  This would appear to be a useful outcome resulting from identifying those people who satisfy the criteria

I don't think I would try to make a conglomerate of Friends Quaker. I know there are way to many different US States & also in the mix is:  "Orthadox" / "Hicksite" / "Beaconite" / "Wilberite" / "Gurneyite" / "Evangelical Friends International" / "Friends United Meeting" / "Friends General Conference" / "Conservative Friends" & " Religious Society Of Friends" Pennsylvania, Maine, New Jersey etc...

But if you hover your mouse over Find at the top Right of your page & then click Categories. & look for the different Categories for Quaker in England, It should give you an Idea of what to look for. Friends Quaker Category is quite hard to me :)

If you plan on Sourcing each profile... they could all be a little different.

Steven, my question to you is: How do you eat an Elephant ?

Answer: "One Bite At A Time". :)

You could also use the search function here in G2G, to help you get a more specific answer, I don't know much about English Quakers, only of William Penn :)

I just type things like Wikitree Category English Quakers into the search bar.  Usually, a category in the hierarchy is at the top somewhere.
